Abstract

Because of the other sanctions and the capitulatİons in the Ottoman Empire, Turkish people weren't given jobs or were given second-class jobs in the first years of the Republic Era. For this reasoıı, Republic Administ- ration began to discriminate the employees working for governments and companies according to their relİgions and nationalities. Those who aren't Turkish were dismissed and the Turkish ones toak their positions. Legal and structural arrangements were also made. Foreigners only worked in the jobs, which needed qualification. îf there were no qualified Turkish people then foreigners would be able to work in the companies with the con- dition of permission from the govemment.
